I see a round plastic cover under the glove box, about where I expect to finder the heater blower on a 1993. Before I just start removing screws till I find the heater blower, are there any good videos, specific to the 80 series, on R&R the heater blower motor?

From what my memory tells me, four screws and couple of connector to disconnect. I haven't done this in a while because I haven't had any rodent nesting in the blower for few years but it took me about ten min to remove.

The plastic cover has a rod and flapper door. Partially pull the cover, it might have a screw or two I cant remember for sure, then carefully unclip the rod. Then pull the screws for the blower.

Thanks for the encouragement. Really no issue to remove the cover & motor.
But crap, the basket seems to be rusted on the shaft of the old motor !!!

need to figure out how to loosen, without crumbling the plastic !!

Ooooh, that's an issue. You may want to replace it with a known, good used unit.
